Item Description...
What is the destiny of the human soul in this life and the next? Dare we hope to "see God face to face," or will our vision of God remain forever filtered "through a glass, darkly"? In this remarkable volume, Rowan A. Greer turns to the New Testament, the church fathers, and later writers to throw light on their own visions of the human soul. He suggests that Augustine of Hippo and Gregory of Nyssa represent two distinct strands of Christian thinking that find expression later in writers such as John Donne and Jeremy Taylor. Greer, who has trained two generations of historians and theologians in the rich thought of the early church, has succeeded in writing a volume that is both full of original scholarly insight and, by virtue of his elegant writing, accessible to laypeople and non-specialists.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A brilliant book  Apr 16, 2002
Christian Hope and Christian Life is one of the best books I've read in years. The basic theme of the book is simple. In the New Testament, we see a consistent emphasis on hope for the future, but different books emphasize different aspects of hope. In the early church, as with the theologians Augustine of Hippo and Gregory of Nyssa, hope for the future life with God is sometimes seen as a distant hope with little relation to the present, sometimes as a hope close at hand that can inform our lives and the decisions we make every day. These two ways of relating the "there and then" of future life with God and the "here and now" of mundane life survive in later Christianity. In English literature, for example (the author is also an Anglican Studies scholar), John Donne represents Christian hope as a somewhat distant, future-looking activity, while writers such as Jeremy Taylor see it as something closer to our everyday world.

What sets Greer's book apart from most studies is its integration of excellent scholarship and spirituality. Greer knows Gregory of Nyssa, for example, as well as any living scholar. But the work is written to appeal to people who also believe, people who care about Christian faith and struggle to find hope in their own lives.

I recommend this book with great enthusiasm.
